If Luxury Had Lips

"Living in the lap of luxury isn't bad, except that you never know when luxury is going to stand up."
~ Orson Welles

If luxury had lips she would kiss so sweetly before she ever spoke
draw you in with a soft sigh and then leave you in a cloud of smoke.

If luxury had arms she would reach out and hold you very tight
make you glad you came but leave you before the second night.

If luxury had a body she would have hips wide and full of grace
that sway with captivation yet always take steps and walk away.

If luxury was a woman she would be beautiful yet extremely sly
eluding you with bright lipstick as she drugs you and simply says
"bye bye!!"


  1. ha. i hate waking up in the morning to an empty bed when i did not go to bed with is fleeting...

  2. If luxury was a woman.............she would say bye-bye. This shows that what we hanker after, blurs even before we taste its fruits. good piece of writing.
